There is an air of excitement building in our house or to be more specific in me. After a couple of years that have been a little sad losing my FIL and coping with my MILs move to an aged care facility we are now back on track.
Last month I celebrated my 60th birthday which was wonderful and something I will never forget.
We are now counting down to a long awaited European holiday. Yes, I know some of the places we are visiting have had some problems with terror attacks but we can’t put life on hold.
My husband and I have been fortunate to have visited many places but one in particular, Spain has been on our bucket list for over 20 years – can you believe it? In fact, my husband used to say he wanted to retire there. Now we are finally achieving that dream and visiting this beautiful and historic country – unfortunately not to retire to but at least to explore.
So on October 1 we begin our adventure which will include visiting London, Portugal and Spain, a 7 day Mediterranean cruise and then time in Italy where my husband was born.
Spain seems to be the flavour of the month and I have been keenly following Natalie’s Blog posts about Spain and Gibraltar during her recent visit and also Donna and her husband from Retirement Reflections as they conquered the Camino Walk. It certainly made me impatient!

My friend and author Toni Pike has written a book ‘Happy Travels 101’ which is a great resource and can be purchased through this link https://www.amazon.com/Happy-Travels-101-sightseeing-enhance-ebook/dp/B072HR1ZC7.

Our suitcases are out ready for packing, my checklist is done and some things already ticked off. Now it is just a matter of waiting and counting down until take off.
Let’s drool over some of the sights we will be seeing as I share this video from Gate 1 Travel ……
P.S. I might be on holidays but the blog must go on and I have some wonderful women to introduce to you in October in The Positive Aging Interviews so you won’t want to miss those.
